Magnolia-liscious and Wild Rose Studio Stamps

 Hi everyone, back today with a DT card for Magnolia-liscious. I'm delighted to now be part of Diana's team where I'll be showcasing Diana's newest additions to her stamp range which are Wild Rose Studio, Wee and Penny Black Stamps. Back to my roots actually as Penny Black stamps is where it all started for me so it's lovely to be working with all these cute images.

Today I've created a card with the Wild Rose Studio Stamp WRS#219 Feeding Birds which I've coloured with watercolour and distress markers with a bit of pencil here and there. I've extended the scene a little by doodling in a hedge in the background and a few more flowers either side.


My card background is created firstly by flicking watercolour that I used to paint the image onto the card base. I die cut the floral corner pieces, flowers, Magnolia DooHickey Swirly Butterfly DH #29 and some triangles using paper from the ever so pretty WRS Annabelle Meadow 6 x 6 papers and white glitter card. I layered everything up including the letters, little butterflies and scalloped image mat and finished off with Stardust Stickles and pearl pen pearls. There's lots of beautiful inspiration from my team mates at the Magnolia-liscious Challenge Blog so if you love cute images you'll be in for a treat.

Thanks as always for your lovely comments, they're always appreciated.
